Assessing ventilation and heating/cooling system performance in swimming pool and spa areas

Tinytag temperature and humidity loggers have been used by QED Engineering Ltd in order to help resolve an issue with excessive corrosion of stainless steel elements within a leisure club environment.

QED Engineering provides building services engineering design (HVAC) for a wide range of industry sectors, including the leisure industry.

For this particular project, the object of monitoring the temperature and humidity was to try and resolve an issue with excessive corrosion of stainless steel elements within the leisure club environment. It was important to establish the fluctuation of temperature and humidity throughout a 24 hour period to check if the ventilation plant was designed correctly and was operating within the required parameters

Four Tinytag temperature/RH loggers were located in the supply air system, the return air system, the pool area at high level, and to measure the external ambient conditions. The recorded data was used to establish if the pool ventilation and dehumidification systems had been designed and installed correctly, and if they were operating within their design parameters. If this was not the case, remedial works could be carried out, such as upgrading plant or equipment.

Dominic Anderson, Director at QED comments, “Tinytags offer robust, simple solutions with an easy to use software interface that makes subsequent report writing quick and simple. In short, they offer precision and reliability which our clients have come to rely upon.”
